Yes, he eventually figured out those crop circles.

I always liked the name Reg Presley, almost as if he was Elvis's younger punk brother.

The other legacy he left was the notorious 'Trogg Tapes' - the band spending their entire studio session time arguing with each other ("Drummers oi shit 'em !"), while an enterprising tape-op left the tape reels turning.

Ah yes, the fabled Trogg Tapes! Should anyone wish to sample:

I better point out that it's not really suitable for playing in the hearing of any innocent young children or maiden aunts who may be passing by. The regular hairy-handed forumites should be amused.


So how are you, me old sparring partner? You can tell how bad things are in wordy world by the fact that I've come here to get away from life's insanities.

I'm OK thanks. Have been better, but could be a lot worse.

I'm resting between contracts, so have time to kill. It would be nicer if it was summer though.

I've got tickets for The Manfreds in March, so looking forward to that.

Will you review The Manfreds show. They were one of my favorite "British Invasion" bands and I was unaware they had reunited(albeit minus Manfred).

Yes, I certainly will do U.U.

It's Paul Jones, Mike Hugg and Tom McGuinness from the original Manfred Mann line up.
As well as being a very fine vocalist, Paul Jones blows a mean harmonica.

I'll report back in March.

just found "The Manfreds Live(2000)...sounds pretty good, but not quite as good as "back in the day"
